10+ Little Details Fans Didn't Notice In Marvel Movies

There are no accidents in the MCU.

Everything is connected, each action is purposeful and planned out with precision. It's this dedication to detail that makes the films so enjoyable.

So to shine a light on some of the lesser-known Marvel Movie Easter Eggs, check out these 10+ little details fans didn't notice in Marvel movies!

Tony reveals a huge Easter Egg in his first encounter with Ebony Maw.

When Tony Stark first lays eyes on Thanos' henchman Ebony Maw in Avengers: Infinity War, he says "Get lost, Squidward."

Thus confirming two things: Ebony Maw does in fact look a lot like Squidward, and SpongeBob exists in the MCU!

What is Roxxon Corp?

The Roxxon Corp logo makes several appearances in the MCU. In the comics, The Roxxon Corp is a ruthless petrochemical company involved in various illegal activities.

They are also the ones who killed Tony Stark's parents.

Peter Quill has a lot in common with *Flash Gordon*.

Tony refers to Quill as Flash Gordon; a slight which Peter takes as a compliment. In the '80s, Flash Gordon was a sci-fi superhero series.

Gordon, like Quill, became a reluctant hero after being blasted into space, inevitably taking on an evil alien dictator. Sound familiar?

Is Indiana Jones a part of the MCU?

When the Red Skull first gets his hands on the Tesseract in Captain America: The First Avenger, he proclaims "Let the Fuhrer dig for trinkets in the desert."

What many don't realize is that this is a direct quote from Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Trevor Noah makes a low key cameo appearance in *Black Panther*.

Don't bother scanning the credits for Trevor's name — you won't find it. Trevor is the voice of the A.I. known as Griot in the film.

Trevor was personally approached by the film's director, Ryan Coogler.

Jarvis has a stocking in the Stark household in *Iron Man 3*.

If you take a look, you can see that it's hung on the mantle right over Pepper's shoulder.

What's even better is that unlike the other red and white stockings, Jarvis' is red and green!

The Infinity Gauntlet in Odin's chamber really is a fake in *Thor: Ragnarok*.

When Hela makes her claim to the throne of Odin, she knocks the Infinity Gauntlet off its perch, claiming it to be a fake.

If you look closely, you'll see Odin's Gauntlet is right-handed, whereas the true Infinity Gauntlet is left-handed.

Bucky falls into water a lot.

Bucky falls into water in each of the Captain America films. The event always triggers a substantial change in his character.

In The First Avenger, it represented his becoming an assassin. In The Winter Soldier, it's symbolic of his recovery from memory loss.

There's a reason why Morgan Stark wanted a cheeseburger.

Immediately after her father's funeral, Morgan tells Happy that she's hungry for a cheeseburger. This is a clever nod to the first Iron Man film.

After returning home from capture, Tony wanted only one thing — a cheeseburger.

Killmonger's mask in *Black Panther* is incredibly accurate.

The mask he wears in the movie was inspired by the comic book version that Erik Killmonger wears. Take a look at the original concept drawings by artist Rodney Fuentebella.

Would you have liked to see this version of Killmonger?

Korg and Taika Waititi shop at the same clothing store.

One of the more hilarious moments from Avengers: Endgame comes when the gang tries to recruit Thor back into the fold.

The pineapple shirt that Korg is wearing is a nod to the same outfit Taika wore to Comic-Con.

There's a reason why Bucky is eating plums in *Captain America: The Winter Soldier*.

Plums have been known to help aid in memory recovery and treat Alzheimer's disease.

It would make sense that Bucky, still recovering from memory loss, would eat a fruit that would help him in this way. Why else would he eat such a nasty-tasting fruit?

Tony Stark makes a reference to a real life *Jimmy Kimmel Live* skit with Benedict Cumberbatch.

When Tony and Dr. Strange meet for the first time in Avengers: Infinity War, Tony says "What is your job exactly, except to make balloon animals?”

This is a reference to a skit Benedict did wherein he was hired to perform at Jimmy's kid's birthday party.
